VCAL certification at midyear

Principals/Directors, VASS Administrators, and VCE, VCAL and VET Coordinators

Students who have completed the requirements for the award of a VCAL by Friday 19 June 2020 have the opportunity to receive a VCAL certificate and Statement of Results in mid-July.

Schools should follow the VASS 'Midyear Reporting' procedures to identify students who are eligible for midyear VCAL certification.

Students who complete a VCAL certificate at midyear will not be eligible to complete the VCE in the same calendar year. If there is a possibility that the student's program may make them eligible for either senior secondary certificate, the student should be consulted to determine which certificate they wish to be awarded in 2020.

Any enrolments (VCE units, VCAL units and VET units of competency) undertaken by a student who successfully completes their VCAL cannot contribute to the award of a subsequent VCE.  

Action required

Principals/Directors should ensure that schools follow the VASS 'Midyear Reporting' procedures to identify eligible students for midyear VCAL certification.
